Our Mission

Organized Chaos promotes health, fitness, community and multi-cultural awareness through paddling and the Asian sport of dragon boating.

About the sport of dragon boat racing:

Dragon boating is the fastest growing water sport in America. Originating over 2,000 years ago in China, these 40’ long boats require 22 individuals to execute as one. Through technique, trust, and teamwork, paddlers learn how to navigate the challenges of shared space and synchronization to achieve top speed.

About us

Founded in 2010, Organized Chaos, Inc. received 501(c)(3) status in 2013. With over 60 active members and 700 supporters, the team competes nationally in Mixed, Ladies, and Open (Men) categories at dragon boat regattas, festivals, and club crew championships. Organized Chaos also supports other paddling disciplines such as stand up paddleboard, outrigger canoe, and kayaking.

Organized Chaos is affiliated with the USA Canoe and Kayak (USACK) and US Dragon Boat Federation (USDBF) governing bodies, with several of our members representing Team USA at the World Championships held in Italy (2012), Poland (2014), Canada (2015), and Russia (2016).

When not on the water, in the gym, or eating right, Organized Chaos supports local charities through volunteering and dollars. Of particular interest are causes which improve personal fitness/health and protect our local waterways. Organized Chaos also provides team building events and festivals for nonprofits and local businesses.
